Great Moderate trail that has amazing views of the desert and surrounding areas. Make sure you take plenty of water as there is *no* shade anywhere throughout the loop. The loop is formed by using part of the Go John Trail. Trailhead is at the visitor center.

The Overton Loop is a well groomed trail and some of the views were incredible. There was even a mineshaft on the hike which was pretty cool, even though not accessible. The hike was moderately difficult. Next time, I think I might try running it--at least most of it. :-)

NOTE that there is a charge at the park gate ($6.00 per car).

We loved the trail. It gives a moderate to higher level of exercise with awesome scenery. You have the feeling that your are way out of the city yet you're just on the outskirts. If you have the opportunity you Ned's to at least try it once!
